Iranian News Agency Prints Onion Story as Fact: Onion Responds by Twisting Knife

The Iranian news agency carried an Onion parody as fact. The Onion rose to the opportunity:
The Onion story was later modified to include the line “For more on this story: Please visit our Iranian subsidiary organization.”

The Onion styles itself as “America’s finest news source” and yesterday its editor Will Tracy released a statement in which he said his site “freely shares content with Fars and commends the journalists at Iran’s Finest News Source on their superb reportage”.
